Re: pain meds: I need help
Oh, Sher! I'm so sorry to hear about your husband falling and injuring himself! My husband fell twice yesterday [once, trying to kick the dog for barking] but, thankfully, was not injured.
It is my understanding that morphine is preferred over demerol. If strong analgesics are not required, the weaker narcotics, like percocet, are probably fine.
I hope they are keeping him for a few days and maybe some time in rehab before he comes home. It will give you a chance to get some sleep and catch up on your errands, etc. BTDT.
God bless! I'm there with you in spirit, sharing your burden.
